A horrifying account of the real life story of serial killer William Bonin (Scott Anthony), one of three killer responsible of terrorizing the highways of California during the late 70’s early 80’s, claiming many innocent victims. The movie is told, as a flash back, from the point view of William, as he is telling his story to the mother of one of his victims. Yes, the mood is grime and the subject grimmer. What is more shocking is the detachment and detailed accounts of each murder. All young hitchhikers fished of the long dark Californian stretches of Highways, and lured by a manipulative charming psychopath.

A riveting watch… A troubling insight into the mind of a twisted individual; as in all such cases, you are left wondering, if he was born this way, or became a killer. The eternal nature vs. nurture debate!
